Abstract

Despite various efforts at corruption control, corruption is a common phenomena in most countries. To explain the rampancy of corruption and its control, scholars concentrated various efforts on studying the causes of corruption and control strategies, along with the functions of corruption. Korea has the same difficulties because of corruption as other countries, but research was not enough and Korean scholars studied mainly fragmented aspects, such as its causes and measures such as strong punishment and adoption of corruption control agencies, etc.
